Client feedback In home care v assisted living

y goal is just at this moment bill is
00:03
doing better we had we had a rocky week
00:06
last week this week we solve some issues
00:09
for him and he’s doing so much better
00:11
and my goal is to keep him at home
00:14
yes so that so you you were talking a
00:22
little bit before about the differences
00:24
between assisted living nursing homes
00:28
and in-home care so do you want to yeah
00:31
that’s right
00:32
bill haven’t been so developed in his
00:34
life for him his brain is so different
00:45
from many and to be able to get the
00:48
individualized attention is really
00:50
magnificent because in a group this way
00:56
we can customize we can mix and match
00:58
the right people the right activities
01:00
and certainly I’m very active and find
01:06
of course it’s good for you because I
01:08
mean certainly every time I’ve been here
01:11
Bill is a charming lovely man I mean

s and it’s a joy to see him thriving
01:16
as well and to be in the home
01:19
environment where most people do do best
01:21
so it’s it’s wonderful and it’s it’s
01:23
it’s so much better than having to go to
01:26
a distant place where you know you have
01:30
to make a special effort to see your
01:31
loved one well even it’s not appropriate
01:37
for bill at all it’s not appropriate for
01:39
dementia because there’s no one-on-one
01:41
there’s no assure they people say we’ll
01:46
be looking out for we did try it but
01:48
they don’t really look out for him he’s
01:49
on his own which is certainly not
01:51
appropriate or expected people with
01:54
dementia can really shut themselves off
01:57
that way because if they’re not getting
01:59
the stimulus they they don’t respond and
02:02
they can kind of make a clam shell up as
02:04
it were and sort of disappear into
02:05
themselves which ultimately doesn’t help
02:08
quality of life and you can
02:10
if we don’t have language those who are
02:12
still with good function as bill he
02:15
knows when he doesn’t know so if you
02:17
can’t explain something it his favorite
02:21
expression is we don’t need to talk
02:23
about that now we’ll talk about it later
02:26
so we always package things for later
02:28
and that means literally that he can’t
02:30
explain yes well that’s that’s one of
02:34
the things isn’t it about to mention
02:36
that it doesn’t mean that their
02:38
intelligence is disappeared by any means
02:40
it just means that the short-term memory
02:42
is getting more and more difficult and
02:44
then eventually as some of the the lack
02:48
of the short-term memory does feed into
02:50
it but it it takes a very long time
02:52
before the they’ve still got that
02:55
intelligence to them and they still got
02:57
that next still have that love of life
02:59
as well you know we he does so many
03:09
things I’m so grateful we have that
03:12
opportunity because it keeps them really
03:14
in the moment and in life for sure thank
03:18
you
